E-Learning Systems for Selling Skills

The growth of the world economy has generated millions of new jobs for people selling products and services, such as retail products, manufactured goods, financial and other services. Selling is an essential vocational skill for development of a modern economy, yet there are few formal training programs to equip sales people with the knowledge and skill needed for success in this vocation. In 2010, MSS completed the first phase development of a web-based e-learning system for sales people in different industries. A complete ten lesson course has been designed during the year. The beta site was launched in September 2010 and is presently undergoing testing and revisions. A website www.tenfoldsales.com was launched to the general public.
